    could it be made so that when you click on it, it opens the clock app?
    You cannot code a iWidget to directly open a app

    However as a work-around you can create a iWidget Icon Overlay that you an place over your icon to give you a similar function.

    To make a iWidget Icon Overlay you have to make the iWidget display out of its widget.plist boundries to allow space to touch the icon.

    Heres is a simple method to achieve this, credits to Durben for first figuring this out



    In your own particular styling css, find the body styling and add the opacity and webkit lines in addition to what you already have defined. Then add the webkit keyframes lines as shown in the pic above.


    Now edit your Widget.plist and change the width and height to something smaller than your icon size.
    Remember this also defines the area to drag the iWidget, so if you make it too small it will be hard to grab and move. Make it too large and you wont be able to touch the icon below it.

    A simple trick to give you enough room to move it and still touch the icon below it is to make the height 1/2 the size of the icon,
    this way you can touch the bottom part of the iWidget covering your icon and still touch the icon to open the app.

    Here is what I use for mine:



    Hope this helps

    Greetings My iWidget Friends

    Finally completed the next version of my iWidget Pack, I have updated all my iWidgets with newer scripts, added Location Input options to all my weather iWidgets and removed the widget.plist boundaries to make them easier to place without interfering with your ability to touch your icons.

    Many people have helped me since I have begun creating iWidgets and I want to give a Big Thank You to everybody that has helped me along the way.

    First I would like to Thank Ian Nicholls and Dacal, without their Awesome Weather Scripts none of my Weather iWidgets would have been possible.

    Also a Big Shout out to my Bro Durben, this man has brought iWidgets to another level and has taught me a lot about iWidget concepts ranging from touch features to escaping the widget.plist boundaries.

    I would also like to give a Thank You to Schnedi, this man is a coding wizard and a great contributor to the MMI community, without him Widgets in general would not be the same. Thanks Mate

    I also cannot forget my Bro ChevyMuscleCar, he has helped me make my Scrolling iWidgets what they are

    And Finally a Big Thank You to my Friends Yakatori and Lucys, both have contributed their artistic touch to my iWidgets and for that I am eternally grateful

    So here is what is included in this iWidget Pack:

    My separated Weather elements :





    These include Temperature, Weather Description, Weather Icon, City/GPS coordinates, 2 clock Styles and Calendar.



    All have many option to let you customize your setup just the way you want, If you dont like my default options, I have made it easy for you to mod your own images, fonts and colors

    Next my Flip Touch iWidgets, one that flips a 4 day forecast and the current weather condition, the other flips the current weather and Calendar/location. Can be used in conjunction with one another like in the pic below or with my separated elements iWidgets.





    Included are a few Multi Scrolling Weather Widget, a generic one, one for the Boss Theme and a single line scroller.



    I have several RSS iWidgets as well :



    and a few animations just for fun :



    So there is plenty to get, and hopefully with all the different options I have integrated into these, you can see how to code your own options.plist and scripts for your use with your own iWidget projects

    Download V7 Pack Here: Drifters iWidget Pack V7.zip

    Have a Great Weekend Everybody
    Love your work man !!! Thanks for this !!!

    Surprise you on what issue? I'm not condoning piracy he made an honest mistake and people whose business it wasn't started attacking if you were that bothered you should of told schnedi and let him ask for it to be removed.

    My problem is the fact you make stuff up and think your the big I am. You don't share **** you don't make anything for the community so get of others backs and do something you call yourself a modder yet haven't a clue.



    Lol!! Clearly a "kid". Attacking from behind a keyboard. Peace, 1Hero. Welcome 'back' to the forum. Do some homework next time, please. It's the right thing to do, man.

    You surprise me, Gunny, on this issue. Oh, that's right.. Whatever side of the argument NewD's trying to establish - regardless of what you 'actually' believe you take the other side. I see how it is, bro..

    I have an issue I'm hoping you guys can help with. Whenever I use a scrolling weather widget (be it from Drifter or Durben), and I place it at the bottom of the SpringBoard it either disappears immediately, or after a short while (usually a few hours). I'm placing it "over" one of Chevy's TW3 weather iWidgets. Durben's can be placed at the bottom of the SB over top of Chevy's, but it eventually disappears later in the day. I can keep Drifter's active on top of Chevy's indefinitely, but only at the top part of Chevy's frame. If I try to initially place it at the bottom of the SB (again, over Chevy's widget), it disappears immediately.

    I'm totally stymied on this one. Any help or suggestions? Thanks!

    Thanks for this Danny (and the original creator).

    Seems to work fine for the first 8 to 10 photos then stays on one image, I've checked all the jpg numbers in the camera roll, all ok.
    Any of the coding guru's have any idea why the widget does not continue to change image continuously?
    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
    Sorry to push the issue but it's got me to the point of distraction.
    I've messed with everything in the Picture.html (but I don't know what I'm doing really!) & it's made no difference.

    Dacal, Gunny, Schnedi, can anyone offer any help please

    Youre a real arrogant piece of work sometimes, Gunny. Get off your high horse dude. I do not need a lecture from you on anything. I have a real job and am learning how to mod. When a person needs help and I can help I do. Often. You don't amass 1500 thanks without 'some people' finding your input helpful; even on a forum that uses their thanks buttons too often to only mean: "yeah, me too". . We've been over this topic pages ago and 2K declared it off topic - so lets move on dude.

    -Rest of my rant taken to PM - please respond there...

    Looks like you forgot to add the

    opacity : 0;

    to the body styling

    Your so close now, what your seeing is the widgets touch area and not the widget displaying out of the widget.plist boundaries.

    Try adding the opacity setting in the body styling and it should work, if not send me a copy of the widget and I will sort it out for you

    Thanks to The.Drifter, everything works now! Thanks a lot man!

    Here is a SS: [Tweak] iWidgets-photo-1.png

    Here is the modified widget(it's using an icon from the Jaku theme repo(jakurepo.com), but that can be easily changed):

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/p342w321nz...2h-Working.zip

    I also removed the date that showed up at the bottom, it's just commented out in the code so you can easily get that back...
